Let’s play catch-up

17 May

Oh man…how did it get to be mid-May already? We have so much to catch up on.

To speed this up, here are the 10 best things that have happened in the last 10 days (in no particular order):

1) My mommy came to visit.

2) Deron’s mommy came to visit.

3) I ate 0.81lbs of frozen yogurt in one sitting. And the next day, when my boss said that he didn’t believe me, I then polished off a pint of Ben & Jerry’s in one sitting. I am such a bad-ass!

4) I saw the White House at night. Beautiful!

5) At least 15 good-looking men greeted me with “Bonjour” at the Sofitel. So fancy!

6) My brother and I had a nice dinner together. We hadn’t seen each other in the last 13 months! He commented that I am always pregnant when I visit him.

7) I learned the Rep. Dold (R-IL) gets unlimited jelly beans from Jelly Belly. Jealous.

8) Deron finally relented to my pressuring and bought an iPhone. Unlimited iMessaging begins.

9) My hubby rocked his promotion test. You can now call him Captain Deron.

10) Henry learned to twirl.

Alright, now maybe we can get back to the regular blogging schedule.


Happy New Year!

1 Jan

Oh my…how the time flies. Has it really been two weeks since I last posted? Is it really 2012?!

Hmmm…maybe it’s time for a December holiday recap and a look ahead to the 2012 year.

December Holiday Highlights

1. Hubby and I celebrated our 6th wedding anniversary at a wonderful restaurant called Oceanique. It was pricey (jawdroppingly so) but our marriage is worth celebrating. College savings plan be damned!

2. Henry, Deron, and I trekked to Arizona for Christmas and enjoyed the warm air, carne asada burritos, and starry nights. We relaxed, slept in, and ate a mountain of food. It was magical. And I think it’s official…we have the best family in the whole world.

3.  Henry learned to crawl. For reals. There is no stopping this kid now.

4. My 29th birthday was marked with a shopping spree (How does Sephora gain such control over me?), Snickers pancakes, and even more relaxation.

5. We were the lamest New Year’s celebrators ever and went to bed at 8:30pm. Boo.

What an enjoyable, entertaining, and easy holiday season! Thanks everyone for the perfect presents, the big hugs, and for doting on Henry. We feel very loved right now.

A look ahead to 2012

1. We eagerly await the move to the new apartment in a couple weeks. More space! Less junk! Babyproofing!

2. Deron applies to become a firefighter captain early this year and will finish the process by May. Good luck hubby!

Plus, our little family has a few goals for the upcoming year:

  • SEE MORE FAMILY, MORE OFTEN. Brother bear and his lovely will (hopefully) visit in early spring. We hope to coerce the Grandmas out here as much as we can. And we fly to Florida in April. Yay!
  • BE POSITIVE.  Less whining about work, Chicago, busy-ness, blah, blah, blah. Focus on the good stuff. There is SO much good stuff.
  • MAKE A COMFORTABLE HOME. Already touched upon but very important. Comfy home = happy Becca.
No doubt 2012 will be as eventful as 2011. Hope the new year brings many joys to all of you. Happy New Year!
